Original text and translations

Italian.png Italian text

Fuggi, speme mia, fuggi
E fuggi per non far mai più ritorno;
Sola tu, che distruggi
Ogni mia pace; a far vienne soggiorno,
Invidia, Gelosia, Pensiero e Scorno
Meco nel cieco inferno
Ove l'aspro martir mio viva eterno.

English.png English translation

Flee, my hope, flee,
and flee to never return;
You alone, who destroy
all my peace; let come
Envy, Jealousy, Worry and Scorn
to me, in the blind hell where
where my cruel agony would last eternally.

Translation by Allen Garvin
